I have to repeat that this show is absolutely terrific (phooooooooey on all you Furthur bashers ...) They are totally on, in many parts it actually does sound like a Grateful Dead show.

"...sounds like a Grateful Dead show."

That's what stops me.

But, again, I'm psyched that you enjoyed the concert, very cool. Any opinion I may have is entirely personal.

I will say this: Furthur does "Dear Mr. Fantasy" much better than the dead ever managed to. It's a favorite tune of mine but I have never liked the dead's version, ESPECIALLY when they go into "Hey Jude".

Thanks, Ring. I enjoyed this show. Yes, it wasn't 1971-02-18 but WTF is except for 1971-02-18?

See you Georgian heads in about 40 days, give or take.

I thought they sounded alot UNLIKE the Dead and thats what I liked....More Ratdog like than Dead like except when they let Phil sing...(finger nails on chalkboard)....But I enjoy the different bend on our old favs...

As long as the music lives on I am happy...

From what I've heard, they sound ...

* "like" the GD in that they end up getting those amazing It moments, particularly in the 2nd sets;

* "unlike" the GD when Bob's singing isn't working (to me it's Bob's singing these day that has the fingernails-on-a-blackboard effect sometimes, not Phil's, cuz Bob is going over the edge into Vegas while Phil just sounds real);

* "like" the GD in that it's got Phil and Bob! Together! Sounding just like, incredibly, Phil and Bob!;

* "unlike" the GD in that, no, JK doesn't sound like Jerry (there are indeed a few strange moments, but on the whole it's a different sound/vibe, which isn't at all off-putting for me -- I mean, it's not exactly news that no one else is Jerry);

* "like" the GD in that the interesting set lists and over-the-topness of the combinations is, as I see it anyway, a way of pushing the envelope. It's not the SAME way of pushing the envelope, but then it wouldn't be pushing, would it?

* and, of course, not the GD. Which doesn't bother me. I mean, they're not. But they're also NOT not.

So. How's that for compromise? Not that I've heard many, but that's my impression. (And not that I've managed to hear this show -- my internet speeds sucks ostrich eggs at the moment. It always sucked goose eggs, but it's moved on to ostriches).

Btw, very cool about the 2/13/11-aka-2/17/82 show.

I hope it doesn't move to dino eggs. Solar batteries?

AR, how much of your listening time would you give to Furthur?
With all the known, then highly rec. shows I haven't gotten to yet, I feel like, why take time away from GD? If GD was a small amount of music I could see it, but it's huge.

Definitely not velociraptor eggs. Perhaps stegosaurus.

I have a mobile thumb-drive thingammy with good speed, but it's also a pay-by-the-byte deal (or multi-byte or whatever), so I actually haven't used it on Furthur. I did use it on 2-12-69, which kinda answers your question, in terms of priorities ...

It's not an electricity issue but a what's-available issue. My mobile thing is the Fastest in the Country, about 3 MBPS. Non-mobile providers typically do about 265 kbps in theory; about half that in daily practice. In the States you get about 10 MBPS, I gather.

Right now, with regular internet (not using my mobile thumb drive), I'm testing at about one-tenth of ten percent of what you get in the States. I can't even DL an AUD file by file to hear later. Was trying to DL a Phil and Friends show, and gave up after managing only three songs in three days. It's super-slow, and then interrupts, which kills the DL. It's only been THAT bad for a few weeks, but still ... definitely clogged with ostrich eggs! (Or stegosaurus.)

We're switching internet providers, though, so cross your fingers the new service will at least bring back the goose eggs!

Well I dunno I just think it sounds really good. A few lapses ... Bob should not sing Death Don't Have No Mercy. Doesn't work. But most of it works.

One thing I will say about this after my rant yesterday.

Furthur needs to be played on a real sound system and played LOUD. It doesn't translate well on a computer speaker.

But in my car LOUD it ROCKS!!!!! and of coarse on the home stereo.

I had flash backs to the old transcendental Dead during the show. I didn't see Friday but was told it was alos very sweet.

Loud = Good

Y'all know that I love Furthur, and they Love Denver (Phil's donor rap on 2/13). Saw all 3- 2 nights on the floor 1/3 - 1/2 the way back. My friends & I all called the Jackstraw>MaMU opener on Friday & I called S>F>Est>Eyes all day Sunday before last show (I bet there were some surprised people after the break bathroom visit where I was 'promising' that 4some. The playing was getting 'there' several times, and I fully expect that the X factor will make Furthur appearances on the east coast this spring.
Peace Out

GD doesn't translate onto computer speakers, either! I'll play other music from my computer speakers, but not GD, somehow ...
